Singer Usher took his two sons and his nephew on an adventurous and memorable plane trip to commemorate Black History Month. The doting father detailed the journey in a recent Instagram upload.

Usher is kicking off Black History Month in a meaningful yet adventurous way. Yesterday, the renowned singer took to Instagram to inform his fans that he took his sons, Naviyd and Usher V, alongside his nephew Tyson.

The almost-12-minute clip began with an informational bit about the prejudice Black pilots faced in the 1940s before the singer made an appearance. He revealed that he and the boys were leaving Atlanta for Tuskegee.

The doting father explained that his oldest son’s first word was airplane so he hoped the trip would inspire the 12-year-old to take it up. He noted that his older son Usher V was terrified while Tyson was flying for the first time.

The video showed the “My Boo” crooner taking instructions from the pilot, Jared Savage, while he made jokes with his sons. Soon, Naviyd took over with instructor Torius Moore as Usher V and Tyson sat behind, expressing their fear of flight.

At some point, the boys listened to their father’s music as the pilots flew them before they landed in Tuskegee. When they arrived, the boys enjoyed a fun game of basketball and barbecue. Usher explained his decision in the caption, writing:

“I decided to do something different and adventurous, educate my boys and nephew about the history of Black pilots.”

It comes as no surprise that Usher chose to commemorate Black History Month with his sons. The award-winning singer gushed about fatherhood in an interview in 2008, saying he loved every part of it.

The eight-time Grammy winner became a father for the third time last year.

He welcomed Naviyd on December 10, 2008, with his ex-wife Tameka Foster, more than a year after Usher V was born. The bundle of joy weighed 5 lbs.,13 oz. at birth and Usher was in the delivery room.

In 2013, Usher V almost lost his life when he was involved in a swimming accident. The youngster, who was five at the time, nearly drowned in their Atlanta home after he fell and got stuck in the drain.
